Women Airforce Service Pilots: An author's journey to honor the female pilots of the greatest generation
Join us as author Vera Williams speaks about the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) of World War II and her journey to write about the first US female military pilots.
In 1941, the call for Americans to serve was met with overwhelming support. Millions enlisted and went to war. Millions at home came together to support the war effort. Of the 25,000 women who volunteered to ferry aircraft across the United States to free up pilots for war time assignments, 1,830 were accepted for training, and 1,074 received their wings. The Women Airforce Service Pilots established themselves with their skill and determination, flying over 12,000 planes and more than 60 million miles.
